2 PAGE 2 COMMENTARY WINGSPREAD BOUNCING BACK Asking for help: Sign of strength, not weakness By Maj. Gen. Mark Brown and Master Sgt. Derik New 2nd Air Force Growing up I was a big fan of Muhammad Ali. He was the world heavyweight boxing champion and unashamedly referred to himself as "The Greatest." I vividly remember a reporter asking Ali, "When did you know that you were 'The Greatest?'" Before Ali could answer, the reporter offered, "Perhaps it was when you knocked out George Foreman in 1974?" Ali shook his head in disagreement, so the reporter continued. "Maybe it was when you destroyed Sonny Liston in the world heavyweight championship in 1964?" Again, Ali shook his head. Then Ali told the story of when he knew he was the greatest. It happened in 1973 when he faced Ken Norton at the San Diego Sports Arena. As Ali entered the arena, the crowed was in a frenzy, cheering "Ali, Ali, Ali!" The world champion stepped in the ring and quickly found himself overmatched against the bigger Norton, suffering a broken jaw in the second round. Ali found the strength to finish the 12-round bout, but suffered only his second defeat in 43 professional fights. Through this trial, after having his jaw broken and being knocked senseless but somehow remaining on his feet, is when Ali truly came to believe he was the greatest. To prove that point, Ali went on to beat Ken Norton in their next two matches. Being knocked out and having to bounce back is all but inevitable for most of us. This is especially true for those of us in the business of delivering air power for America. Our mission can be stressful and those stresses can be further complicated by the everyday challenges of life. The good news is that, regardless of our situation, there is always a helping hand. The act of reaching out to these individuals may be difficult, but should never be thought of as a sign of weakness. In fact, recognizing you need help, and seeking that help, only builds resilience and strengthens your character. Knowledge of this indirect benefit is well documented throughout history. Wingspread holiday schedule The Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph Wingspread will not publish Dec. 26 or Jan. 2. The last issue for 2014 will be Dec. 19 and the first issue of 2015 will be published Jan. 9. Call for more information. "We all need help every now and then. Some individuals feel very comfortable asking for financial, spiritual, physical, or emotional help during difficult times; however, many others are unable to recognize when help is needed, or are just reluctant to ask." Per John Heywood, an English author and playwright in the early 16th century; "If you will call troubles experiences, and remember that every experience develops some latent force within you, you will grow vigorous and happy, however adverse your circumstances may seem to be." We all need help every now and then. Some individuals feel very comfortable asking for financial, spiritual, physical, or emotional help during difficult times. However, many others are unable to recognize when help is needed, or are just reluctant to ask. For those who prefer to do things themselves, so as not to burden others, the situation or experience can eventually become such a weight that the individual is unable to go at it alone or is already in over their head. Air Force physicians, mental health providers, chaplains, first sergeants, commanders and wingmen are all there to help. There are also many programs that allow you to talk or research your situations, such as family readiness centers, the Military Crisis Line, the Air Force Suicide Prevention web site, the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program and The Airman's Guide for Assisting Personnel in Distress. But the fact remains, if you don't reach out, it's difficult to offer assistance. As military members, your country relies on your service and we understand the burden that can be levied upon you and your families. You are not alone; someone is there to help. My wish to you this holiday season is that you will ask for help if you need it. Just remember that even "The Greatest" had to bounce back to truly realize his greatness.

5 DECEMBER 12, 2014 WINGSPREAD PAGE 5 Thrift Savings Plan limits increase for 2015 By Janis El Shabazz Air Force Personnel Center Public Affairs The Internal Revenue Service has announced increased limits for 2015 Thrift Savings Plan contributions. "The maximum contribution amount for traditional and/or Roth TSP will be $18,000. This is an increase from the elective deferral limits of 2013 and 2014, which was $17,500," said Erica Cathro, AFPC Human Resources Specialist. "Additionally, the maximum amount of 2015 catch-up contributions is $6,000, which is an increase from the $5,500 elective deferral limit for calendar years 2013 and 2014." Catch-up contributions are additional tax-deferred contributions and are separate from regular TSP contributions. For those who are eligible, catch-up contributions provide a way for individuals to secure their retirement, especially for those who begin investing later in their careers. To be eligible for catch-up contributions, civilian and military employees must be 50 or older in the year in which the first deduction from pay occurs. They must also be in a pay status and be able to certify they will make, or have made, the maximum "regular" employee contributions of $18,000 to a TSP or other eligible account by the end of TSP contributions stop when an employee's contributions reach the annual maximum limit and will automatically resume the next tax year if the employee is still enrolled in TSP. "This is especially important to employees under the Federal Employees Retirement System because once employee contributions stop, agency matching contributions will also stop," Cathro said.

6 PAGE 6 24th Air Force Public Affairs The Digital Signature Enforcement Tool is scheduled for Air Force-wide integration Dec. 5, providing Microsoft Outlook users with an interactive, automated virtual assistant to help ensure the security of personally identifiable information. I can t overstate the operational importance of preventing PII breaches, said Maj. Gen. Edwin Wilson, 24th Air Force and Air Forces Cyber commander. It s not an information technology problem, it s a total force problem and DSET is an effective tool the total force can use, right now, to help reduce inadvertent PII breaches. Beyond potential identity theft, PII breaches can lead to significant compromises in operational security. For example, a well-meaning member working to meet an operational deadline sends an unencrypted , containing PII on several unit members, to a non.mil account. WINGSPREAD DECEMBER 12, 2014 Tool to safeguard PII rolls out this month See SAFEGUARDING PII P7

7 DECEMBER 12, 2014 WINGSPREAD PAGE 7 SAFEGUARDING PII from P6 The sender could be attempting to get ahead on a project or be providing a status update to unit members on pending unit movements. Unknown to the sender, hackers have compromised transport infrastructure between the sender s desktop and one of the destination, non.mil desktops. Hackers intercepting this unencrypted traffic can utilize the newly acquired personal information to form specifically targeted attacks, known as spear phishing, to acquire additional information such as account numbers or passwords. Unfortunately, the attack does not stop there. Once an attacker has acquired enough information, he can simulate user accounts or even pass off communications on behalf of the service member, who is likely still unaware that his information has been compromised. Those false communications could be leveraged to gain digital access to Air Force systems, or even physical access to installations and personnel. Obviously, the negative implications caused by PII breaches are severe, and equipping the force with tools to mitigate the risk is paramount. DSET version 1.6.1, an updated version of the DSET software already in use by the Air National Guard, Air Force Reserve Command and Air Force Space Command, contains fixes for some previously identified software bugs as well as enhancements to make the digital tool more effective. DSET launched back in July to three major commands, said Alonzo Pugh, cyber business system analyst for 24th AF. Feedback has been overwhelmingly favorable for the use of the tool, and version is definitely ready for Air Forcewide usage. DSET is regarded as a short-term fix to help all Air Force network users protect PII, specifically if that information is to be included in an communication. DSET still only scans for PII in the form of social security numbers, leaving overall responsibility on the user to safeguard the sensitive information in all of its forms. First, the user should ask him or herself if the PII in the is truly necessary, Pugh said. DSET scans the draft before transmission. If PII is identified, DSET will notify the user through a series of pop-up windows. This interactivity allows the user to make a conscious decision of how to proceed with the information in question. According to Pugh, if the information must be transmitted, encrypting the PII is all that is necessary to protect the data during transmission. DSET will trigger when it detects potential PII in an , giving the user the opportunity to delete the information if not necessary to the communication, encrypt the information or override and transmit the as originally written. If the file containing PII is already encrypted through the Microsoft Office protect permission feature or some other software DSET will not trigger and the can be sent as usual to any recipient s address, whether.mil,.com, etc. However, if the itself is encrypted through Microsoft Outlook, the communication is only safe to transmit to a recipient s.mil address. An encrypted in this fashion cannot be sent to any non-.mil addresses. If the user attempts to do so, DSET and Microsoft Outlook will provide pop-up boxes explaining the user s options. I can t overstress the importance of reading the information in the pop-up box, Pugh said. Read the training materials on the use of DSET; read the training slides on how to use Microsoft Office features to encrypt various documents; understand how these tools can help you safeguard PII. In preparation for the Air Force-wide release of DSET, Airmen can access training at: DSET tutorials: DSET Quick Reference Guide: af.mil/assets/files/oe _qrg-dset_v0001.pdf Additional training on how to encrypt Microsoft Office documents can be accessed at: shared/media/document/afd pdf Users have multiple tools at their disposal to protect PII if encrypting is not feasible, but if electronic transmission of sensitive PII is operationally required, users can leverage approved Department of Defense file exchange services at: More information regarding DSET implementation can be found at: asp?id=

9 DECEMBER 12, 2014 WINGSPREAD PAGE 9 Exercises allow security forces members to perfect their craft By Robert Goetz Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph Public Affairs Photos by Johnny Saldivar Tech. Sgt. William Graham (right), Officer Daniel Rolin (center) and Airman 1st Class Joshua Ridgeway (left), members of the 902nd Security Forces Squadron, push through to neutralize simulated hostile threats during a barricaded suspect exercise Nov. 10 at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph s Camp Talon. Security forces members exchanged simulated munitions fire with hostiles throughout the exercise, bringing more realism while practicing assault force maneuvers during the exercise scenario. Members of the 902nd Security Forces Squadron prepare to assault in a file formation during a barricaded suspect exercise Nov. 10 at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph s Camp Talon. Exercises play an important role in the Air Force, testing an organization s effectiveness in responding to contingencies such as active-shooter incidents, natural disasters and chemical spills. Installation-level exercises are typically well-publicized events in base communities, but other exercises less obvious to the public take place at Air Force bases on a daily basis. At Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, 902nd Security Forces Squadron members engage in flight- and squadron-level exercises that help them perform at a peak level throughout the year. These exercises are additional training for our defenders out there so they can provide the best service and best protection possible for all the resources at JBSA-Randolph, Master Sgt. Kevyn O Neill, 902nd SFS NCO in charge of standards and evaluations, said. Flight-level exercises are performed on a daily basis, sometimes two or three times a day, O Neill said. Flight-level exercises affect those who are on duty at that time, he said. It could be an exercise dealing with gate runners, traffic stops, vehicle searches or chemical spills. Squadron-level exercises, on the other hand, affect everyone in the squadron, O Neill said. It could happen at night or on the weekend, he said. It s a time when you call in extra forces. Staff Sgt. Larry Holmes, 902nd SFS NCO in charge of police services, called JBSA-Randolph a unique location. We deal mostly with law enforcement actions, such as traffic stops and gate issues, but we have an exercise for just about anything that can happen here, he said. Exercises are often tailored to events that happen most frequently or are the most dangerous, O Neill said. We try to do exercises that patrol officers and installation security advisers deal with most often, such as traffic stops and vehicle searches, or those that are the most dangerous, like active shooters, he said. An exercise that took place Nov. 10 tested 902nd SFS members responses to an incident involving barricaded suspects. Members exchanged simulated munitions fire with adversaries and practiced assault force maneuvers. O Neill and other exercise evaluators carefully assess participants, taking notes and providing a critique at the event s conclusion. We go out and evaluate how the guys are doing their job, he said. We make sure they follow established tactics, techniques and procedures. O Neill said exercises reinforce the training 902nd SFS members get and give it a practical application. It s just that repetitive nature, he said. It s done to perfect your craft so you will automatically react to situations. You don t rise to the occasion; you fall back on your training. Holmes said exercises help security forces members prepare for the unexpected. If we do it over and over again, it becomes muscle memory and helps us meet challenges more efficiently, he said.

Kevin Iinuma Senior Airman Catherine Scholar (right), 59th Medical Diagnostics and Therapeutics Squadron diet therapy journeyman, congratulates Airmen for answering correctly during a nutrition jeopardy game recently at the Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center, Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland. By Christopher Carwile 59th Medical Wing Public Affairs While comment and feedback cards are always available for patients in every clinic of the Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center, the 59th Diagnostics and Therapeutics Squadron is taking an active, "re-construction" approach to gaining feedback. "It's all about enhancing the patient care experience," said Byron Nichols, 59th Medical Support Group process improvement advisor. "The 59th MDTS is working to make us the pharmacy, the lab, and nutritional medicine clinic of choice for our number one customer, the patient," Nichols said. During the six-week project, squadron members, wearing hard hats and reflective vests, collected 1,500 responses from visitors to questions about their customer service experiences. Responses to two questions have been primarily positive with a 98 percent satisfaction rating. "However, we have identified several areas for improvement such as service hours, communication, and other internal processes we can adjust to better meet the needs of our patients," Nichols said. Now it's the squadron's turn to provide feedback to the customer. "The answers that our patients provided were taken and categorized," he said. "We are creating a display for our patients so they can know that we acknowledge what they told us and are addressing their concerns. "This is a unique step because many times if a suggestion is made, the patient never hears a response from the clinic," Nichols added. "The 59th MDTS Reconstruction Program is committed to improving communication and providing feedback so our patients know we listen and we care."

13 DECEMBER 12, 2014 WINGSPREAD PAGE nd Contracting Squadron saves Air Force dollars By Senior Airman Krystal Jeffers Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland Public Affairs To advertise in the Wingspread, call The 502nd Contracting Squadron is the backbone of Joint Base San Antonio, because of their efforts in acquiring essential services and equipment for the wing. Brig. Gen. Bob LaBrutta, 502nd Air Base Wing and JBSA commander, praised members of the 502nd CONS, recognizing the unit for their great work in making JBSA the premier installation in the Department of Defense. The impact that our contracting squadron has on the 502nd ABW, our mission partners and JBSA overall is immense, he continued. The squadron completed multiple projects during fiscal year 2014 that benefited both JBSA and the Air Force as a whole. According to the 502nd CONS, They were responsible for approximately $32.8 million in construction projects to enhance 87 JBSA buildings and $3.6 million for road repair. These improvement projects directly impact JBSA s infrastructure by providing better facilities, which will help prepare the 502nd ABW for potentially tight budgets in the future. These projects are going to be really important because the more we do this year and next, the less maintenance will be needed during 2016 when the projected budget cuts come, said Lt. Col. Thomas Hoskins, 502nd CONS commander. Another contract the squadron handled during the fiscal year is expected to save millions of dollars for JBSA over the next 10 years. The joint base is expected to save $3.7 million from six energy conservation projects. In addition, the 502nd ABW received a rebate of $250,000 for FY 2014 from one of the projects. Additional rebates are expected in 2015, which will return more money to the 502nd ABW support budget. We are seeing a lot more of these (types of projects), Hoskins said. They are practically paying for themselves with rebates and how our energy bill is going down. In addition to saving money for the JBSA community, the 502nd CONS is potentially saving lives in San Antonio. They secured more than $88.8 million in personnel, equipment and supplies for the San Antonio Military Health System and the 55,000 yearly patients they provide for. In addition, they were responsible for securing contracts that resulted in reducing the Texas bone marrow transplant wait list by 92 percent and supported the effort that potentially saved six lives, according to the 502nd CONS. All of this was because of our people, Hoskins said. They are the only reason we got all this done. They performed very well, especially given what we have gone through in the last year with (502nd ABW) transformation and the restructuring of our squadron. Previously, there was a contracting squadron for each location of JBSA-Lackland, Fort Sam Houston, and Randolph. With the transformation, we became one squadron and refocused our flights to take on work for all of JBSA, Hoskins said. Now all the flights have a more defined and strategic workload. Some flights, like one of the three infrastructure and construction flights, were refocused from supporting a single location to the entire JBSA, while other flights were completely re-tasked. It was a big change for the individual flights and they took on a lot more responsibility, Hoskins explained. It allows us to be not only effective but efficient across the whole joint base. It will provide us a foundation to do more strategic contracts so we can go after those savings. We want to make sure that we are buying the right things so that the mission is supported while also protecting the taxpayers dollars. The commander contributes the merger s success and the unit s ability to support JBSA while getting the best value for taxpayer dollars to the people who composed the squadron. They all had to adjust to a whole different work load, Hoskins said. It is amazing what they did in the time they did it. They are flexible, focused and driven. They are good folks pushing hard and it is obvious that they care about what they do. They did a lot of good work throughout the year to get the squadron where it is today.
